Subject: best Attics and Friend
Jerry is golden 9/27.
Friend Of The Devil, Deal, Bird Song, Ramble On Rose, Cumberland and Attics are great versions.
Dark Star is beautiful.
Subject: Tear this old building down
This was a stellar show.
some of my memories from the night:
My 2 friends and I had bought a bottle of tequila and downed it outside the venue. then just as we stepped into the theatre the band hit the first chord of Morning Dew. It felt like they were waiting for us to begin and were heralding our arrival.
There was a banner hanging from the balcony that said, "get well Pigpen". During the big rocking songs like Sugar Magnolia or Casey Jones you could see the balcony bouncing up and down at least six inches. The banner was waving wide and high. I had heard that they had to condemn the theatre after these shows because of structural damage.
the md5s arnt gonna work. the files were removed a while ago because this show is available for purchase at dead.net. its dicks picks 11 and well worth the dough.
Subject: Files Won't Work
whenever I try to verify (and I have tried with multiple applications) it says that the actual files are missing in the .md5 files. any ideas?
Subject: bird song delight
this is one of my favorite september '72 shows, along with 9/21,(also now a dick's pick). actually i'd go as far as to say its one of my favorite shows ever.
ok, so i've been pretty obsessed with bird song lately, and i just can't get enough of this one sometimes. besides veneta, (and possibly 6/22/73), this is the best one ever, imho. yah, i know, there's some great ones in the 80's and 3/29/90 w/ bradford marsalis is a lot of people's favorite, but i really favor these '72/'73 versions. garcia's phrases, especially the jam before the second verses, are prefectly chosen. it is one of my favorite fat-man jams ever. bobby and phil really throw in some jazzy rhythms too, making this one all the more beautiful.
but one song dosen't make a show (usually haha). the rest of this is just as good. dark star is really fluid and jazzy in the first half, and then gets OUT THERE. no 9/21 or even 8/27, but very different. china>rider, deal, GSET, ramble on rose and tennesse jed are some of my favorite versions of the year. and this show also has the hands down best cumberland blues EVER. jerry's hands move like lightning. the uncle john's at the end has a sweet, almost playin'-like jam in the middle, it's my favoite version for '72.
do yourself a favor and go buy dick's picks vol. 11.
Subject: Very good show
I've listened to this closely several times on DP11. Dark Star starts a bit slow but they do a fast jazzy thing in the middle with which is outstanding (Keith was the keyboard player who understood jazz the best). Friend of the Devil is great. It is fast. This was before they slowed it down in the Mid-70's. I knocked off a point because the vocals are sloppy and because Jerry screwed up the Casey Jones solo. But overall, it is a very good show.
Subject: Box it
Went to this Three nite run back in 72. I was a senior in H.S. and I had to beg my parents to let me go because there was a school nite in that run. All three shows were fantastic. This one probably the best of the run. Would make a nice boxed set The DS>Cumberland is top notch
Subject: Another great show from '72
While this show is unavailable here, I've had DP11 for some time now and must say it is in my top 5 from 1972. Dew opens the show and it's gravy from there.....great Bird Song, great China>Rider, really great Playin' closes set I. Too bad they began to mellow out in 1st sets later in their career.
Set II opens with a sweet He's Gone.....great harmonies and ensuing jam. A few relaxing tunes and it's liftoff time with a CLASSIC Dark Star. Jazzy jams, sweet noodling and all the chaos one would ever want from this song. It only takes 24min to find the 1st verse. You get the idea. And to melt into Cumberland is simply amazing. Also, the UJB is pretty unique in its presentation.....lots of reggae. Worth buying!
Subject: Dark Star
This show indicates the high level of intensity the Dead brought to performing in the greater New York metropolitan area beginning 16June1968( first Fillmore East performance, see archive). Unbelievable Dark Star, arguably their best ever.
Subject: Buy the Dick's Picks
If you don't already own this show as Dick's Picks 11, go and buy it from the gdstore right now! This really is an amazing performance. Opening with Morning Dew is always an indication of an excellent show and this one does not let up until the end. While your at it, you should pick up the next night from the Stanley on the archive.
Subject: officially released On CD as Dick's Pick's Volume 11.
